Ugochukwu Amadi

#7 University of Oregon, Safety (Senior)
Height: 5'10, Weight: 201
Grade: 7.02, Round: 3-4

Ugo Amadi is a former four-star prospect who passed up on LSU and Penn State for Oregon. Amadi has played at both safety, and more recently cornerback, but he's best seen as a safety with his high football IQ. After being one of the top high school players in Tennessee, Amadi his worked his way up to become one of the better defensive backs in the Pac-12. He may not receive the same hype as some others, but it's important not to overlook Amadi this draft process. He was named to some All-Pac-12 teams as a junior in 2017, and he looks likely to be named to First and Second teams in 2018 as a senior.
